Victory against Western Province in Saturday’s Currie match at Coca-Cola Park is not negotiable, says Lions coach Eugene Eloff.

“We have been close on a number of occasions, but this time it is an absolute must win situation,” said Eloff.

News 24 reports that He has made only two changes to the team which outplayed but lost to the Sharks in Durban last weekend.

Heini Gordon loses his place and Michael Killian comes in on the wing in his place. At lock, hard-working Anton van Zyl is in for Gerhard Mostert who is injured again.

“The guys are really motivated for this one,” said Eloff. He says they know they should have won last weekend’s match but he points out that the Lions are now only in their second full season of building.

“It took the Blue Bulls three years to build. At least we’re creating the opportunities,” he pointed out, although he is very much aware of the threat posed by Western Province who are above the Lions on the log.

Team:
Louis Ludik; Michael Killian, Jaco Pretorius, Doppies la Grange, Rayno Benjamin; Earl Rose, Jano Vermaak; Willem Alberts, Franco van der Merwe, Cobus Grobbelaar (capt), Anton van Zyl, Dewald Senekal, Lawrence Sephaka, Willie Wepener, Heinke van der Merwe.

Replacements: Ethienne Reynecke, Gert Muller, Justin Wheeler, Derek Minnie, Chris Jonck, Jaco can Schalkwyk, Heini Gordon.

    i have had a look around on a few sites and it seems he is STILL penciled in. But if he doesn’t start he will be on the bench so will definately score you some points
